Single-Unit Truck | Bus - 20' WB

The turning path of a Single-Unit Truck or Bus measures the minimum possible turning radius necessary for performing a u-turn in a vehicle with a 20’ | 6.1 m wheelbase. Measuring the inner and outer radii of the 180° turn, a minimum inner radius of 28’4” | 8.64 m and minimum outer radius between 42’-43.5’ | 12.8-13.26 m should be provided for single-unit trucks and buses.

Common Questions
What is the minimum inside turning radius required for a bus?
A minimum inner turning radius of 28’4” | 8.64 m should be provided for a bus or single-unit truck making a 180° turn.

What is the minimum outside turning radius required for a bus making a 180° turn?
The outer turning radius necessary for a bus or single-unit truck making a a 180° turn should be between at least 42’-43.5’ | 12.8-13.26 m.
How big is a typical city bus?
The average city bus varies in length between 35’-45’ | 10.7-13.7 m with widths between 8’-8’6” | 2.4-.6 m.
Common Questions
How is a turning circle measured?
A vehicle’s turning circle is the radius (or diameter) measured by the outer wheels of the vehicle while making a complete turn.
What car has the smallest turning radius?
The smart fortwo (2016) has the smallest turning radius of a passenger vehicle at a radius of 22’10” | 6.9 m.

What is a typical turning circle for a passenger car?
A turning radius of 34’-35’ | 10.4-10.7 m is common for passenger cars today.
